    I know you would use it the right way, too.

    Nobody wants an 8" EPIC with a 15" cone? Look at the Qts on this "under-motored" guy.

    Hey Shane!
    I still have that Storm I got from ya...bout 50-60 hrs on her.
    This sub sounds sweet with that low fs and expected flat response.
    No cash right now, but I am looking for some more TC goodness in the (hopefully very) near future.

    Nope, those had a TC9 which is a 3" coil.

    This uses a TC2+ but no need to be afraid of the 2" coil, anyone who's ever used any of the RL-i or EPIC drivers can attest to their abilities. Only a lucky handful have ever heard the 15" get down.

    I can't believe no one has bought these yet!! They would be AWESOME for home theater use! Flat 120db response down to 20hz in a 17.5cu ft ported box 13x4 slot port 21in length tuned at 17hz! Doesn't get much better than that! CHEAP low distortion sound here! Free bump for a nice guy with nice stuff!

    Thanks, Marcus!

    They do extremely well in smaller setups for the vehicle as well. Perfectly suited for home or car, music or movies.
